"In the whole history of publishing, few books were more eagerly awaited than the successor to The Robe.
In The Robe Lloyd C. Douglas began his story in A.D. 37. The story was told in retrospect. The reader followed Marcellus through the reconstruction of the life and spirit of Jesus. The Big Fisherman begins in A.D. 30 and many of the principle characters of the book are the characters of the Passion Story, illuminated by one of the greatest storytellers of our time."
